In California: Rose Parade float celebrates the caregivers among us - USA TODAY
Jerry and Judy Crotsenberg, both 68, who are dedicated to making sure they can age in place together on their family farm in Wisconsin.
“We think about hope’s heroes as the family caregivers who are protecting the ideal vision of home for an older loved one who wants to stay living well in community,” said Gretchen Alkema, vice president of policy and communications at the SCAN Foundation, a charity organization that works to expand improve care for older adults.
Family caregivers provide an estimated 34 billion hours of labor amounting to roughly $470 billion of unpaid contributions, according to a recently released report from nonprofit AARP.
One in six adults is currently taking on this role at home. That includes my mom, who takes care of my dad and abuelita in San Diego County. Thanks, mom.
Planning to watch or go to the Rose Parade? Here are some things to know.
New laws, new housing, more lawsuits
New laws in 2020 include caps on rent increases, increases in paid family leave from six to eight weeks and a change that allows people convicted of felonies who served their time to sit on juries.
There's also a sweeping privacy law that allows you to see which companies are selling your data and to stop them from selling it.
Then there's another law aimed at protecting gig workers. Uber and Postmates are suing to block that one from going into effect on Jan. 1.
Landlords of rent-controlled buildings in Los Angeles are using a controversial way of co-ownership — think NYC co-ops — to divvy up properties. Critics say it's reducing the tiny supply of affordable rentals.
A private prison firm that just secured multibillion-dollar contracts to run federal immigration detention centers in California has sued the state, claiming that a new ban on for-profit lockups is unconstitutional.
California poised to lose a congressional seat
For the first time since becoming a state, new census data shows that very possibility. The reapportionment, done every 10 years, will follow the completion of the 2020 census. The actual redrawing of the congressional maps will take place the following year, in 2021.

Flower-covered Floats Blossom at the Annual Rose Parade - HowStuffWorks
Pac-12 and Big Ten. (The 2020 Rose Bowl will host No. 6 Oregon Ducks and No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers, Jan. 1, 2020. at 5 p.m. EST. The Rose Parade starts at 11 a.m. EST.)
History of the Tournament of Roses Parade
That first Rose Parade welcomed 3,000 people to an event filled with beautiful horse-drawn carriages covered in flowers. During the next few years, the parade was expanded to include marching bands and motorized floats, and the games included ostrich races, bronco-busting demonstrations, and a race between a camel and an elephant (the elephant won).
Viewing stands were eventually built along the parade route, which today runs 5.5 miles (8.8 kilometers) from the corner of Green Street and Orange Grove Boulevard to Colorado Boulevard (where the majority of the viewing occurs) before heading to Sierra Madre Boulevard and then ending at Villa Street.
In 1895, the Tournament of Roses Association was formed to take charge of the event, which had grown too large for the Valley Hunt Club to handle. Now more than a century after its formation, the two-hour New Year's Day parade is attended annually by about 700,000 spectators who revel in a beauty of its magnificent floats, talented marching bands and high-stepping equestrians.
All About Those Fabulous Floats
If there's one thing the Rose Parade is known for, it's the elaborate floats. Some feature high-tech computerized animation and exotic natural materials from around the world. Although a few floats still are built exclusively by volunteers from their sponsoring communities, most are constructed by a cadre of professional float-building companies and take nearly a year to complete.
Remaining true to its floral beginnings, every inch of every float must be covered with flowers or other natural materials, such as leaves, seeds or bark. The most delicate flo... Oct 10, 2019

Bathroom Break and Bling?
Not long after, it was Memorial Day weekend, and the two were taking a hike in Wisconsin before they were to meet up for “Friday Fish Fry” with his family. After begging for a break, Hannah says, she sat on a bench on an overlook while he disappeared into the trees supposedly to relieve himself. As she took in the views, he was actually setting up a GoPro to record the pending proposal. He came back, pulled out a ring, and … “It was so sweet,” says Hannah. “I am not positive if he fully asked me to marry him, but after a lot of very embarrassing jumping around, I said ‘Yes!’” When they headed back down the mountain, the fish fry had morphed into an engagement party with friends and family who were there to celebrate with the couple all weekend long.
About that Ring
“All I knew was that she like emerald (???) cut and preferred a three-stone style,” says Matthew. “Nothing more. To her credit, she wasn’t pushy and didn’t want to know anything. I ended up creating and designing it with the aid of a close friend’s ‘diamond guy.’ After hand-picking each stone, I moved on to the band and setting. It took a few months, but she was happy, and that’s all I care about.”
Black and White or Full-Color?
Hannah thought green and white was going to be her color combo for the wedding day, but after OD-ing on Pinterest, and talking with planner Natalie Knox of Boone Hall, they went with pops of color via the flowers and taper candles. The verdict? Classy and colorful!

Local Slow-Flower Farms Around Minnesota That Are Blossoming - Mpls.St.Paul Magazine
Minnesota—so she brought it here.
“I found two chemical-free farms in Minnesota, and one in Wisconsin,” she says. “Then I just started asking produce farms if they would grow flowers for me. Most said no, but a few said yes.”
In addition to exclusively selling chemical-free, Minnesota-grown flower subscription packages from her studio, Hoffman also educates other florists and the public on the environmental impact of the floral industry. Here are some of our slow-flower farm faves.
Summer Badawi and Sanna Beek’s crops prove local blossoms can look modern and elegant. “We’re trying to elevate the perception of local flowers,” Badawi says. “They’re not just for mason jars at a barn wedding!” They grow lisianthus, unique foliage, dahlias, and more than 70 other varieties, selling at pop-up events, to florists like Ashley Fox and Kindred Blooms, and directly to couples for weddings. Long Lake, ladyfernflowers.com
Liz Dwyer and Curtis Weinrich started Dancing the Land in 2012, partly to make Dwyer’s family farm the perfect venue for their wedding. “Our goal was to grow all the food and flowers for the wedding,” Dwyer says. “And we did it.” Now, they grow 75 different flower and foliage varieties: dahlias, zinnias, eucalyptuses, daisies, and more, plus heirloom veggies. Dwyer sells their wild, cou...
